    I see that the classic rodeo starts at 8pm each night. Is there anything going on earlier in the day to come for?

      Hi Jenni,
      Past events have included a petting zoo, a mechanical bull, and a kids bungee jump. There were also vendors selling western gear, food and drinks, beef jerky, and more. These vendors will likely change over time, but if you get there about an hour early you can likely find some type of entertainment, or perhaps you could just get there early to grab a front row seat for the rodeo.

      Our guess is that regular dogs are not permitted, however service dogs are probably ok. This would be a question for the event organizers – you can reach them at (770) 684-7277.

    Heading Stateside for a great RV trip starting in Marietta on15th. What better way to start a 5 week trip than your Rodeo. Do we need to get there early to get a great seat? This is our first ever Rodeo… Can’t wait!

      Hi Nick,

      Great to hear that you are planning to attend. Based on our experience with past rodeos, you can get a great seat if you arrive 30 minutes to 1 hour in advance. Hope you enjoy the show!

    Thanks to all who made 3 of us from the UK really welcome at our first ever Rodeo. It was a great start to a fantastic tour of the South of the USA. Heading home in 3 days but hope we will be back to see more amazing skills. Especially impressed with the riding skills of the girls!
    Thanks again and you have new fans across the Atlantic!

    Hi there. We are looking to go to the rodeo show Saturday evening.. We are a family of 5 driving from NJ and I was wondering if should be concerned about the event selling out? I can pre-order tickets through someone to make sure we are definitely in as we are making a long trip down there? Thnaks :]

    Enjoyed the rodeo but the clown’s jokes were either x-rated or blasphemous. I was truly offended and embarrassed. There were so many children there!
